Somatic Equine Therapy

Most aspiring horsemen and women understand the relationship of our emotions to your horse’s reactions, which is why ridding your spirit of past traumas is critical.  Whether your former challenge was horse- or human-initiated, Buddy can help you unwind and unleash disquieting memories.  Certified as a Somatic Equine Therapist, he facilitates the recognition and release of physical tension that remains in the body in the aftermath of a harrowing event.  By exhuming and tracking physical sensations correlated to the event, you can reframe and mentally transform it.  And of course it’s no surprise your equine friend can facilitate your process.

Basic Horsemanship

Be honest…. How well do you walk, trot, and lope on a loose, collected rein?

If you could use some positive pointers, don’t miss Buddy’s Basic Horsemanship Riding Clinic.

In just two days you will:

  • Have a balanced seat and timing in sync.
  • Effectively execute all the basic maneuvers.
  • Trail ride more confidently and barrel race more effectively.

Day One is all about balance, both yours and your horse’s, because balance is the foundation for graceful, natural riding.  

Day Two builds on balance by showing you how to softly yet effectively “whisper” instructions to your horse.  With your cueing like the gentle direction of a capable waltz partner, you two will be Dancing with the Stars.

  • Tackle any terrain
  • Overcome any obstacle
  • Enjoy any gait

 Barn sourness or herd bound habits be gone.

You’ll also leave with a sound knowledge of safety, possible dangers and trail etiquette.
